Birmingham Home Review

Birmingham, Alabama offers an incredible diversity of homes for it's residents. From traditional ranch to spilt foyers, to bungalow, and craftsman style homes, you can find the home of your dreams in Birmingham, Alabama. Established neighborhoods in Homewood or Mountain Brook or new construction homes in Helena, Chelsea, and Hoover make the Birmingham real estate market an exciting place to shop for a home!

Each week, a staff member or associated Birmingham real estate agent travels to a residential development to preview, inspect, and review the homes for sale or under construction. Once we have the report, we post the article along with original photos of the neighborhood taken by our staff photographer. If you are interested in a particular neighborhood that we have yet to visit, drop us a note and let us know the name of the development and we will schedule a review!

The homes for sale in Birmingham neighborhoods span just about every price range to suit any budget or family. Some neighborhoods such as Greystone and Ross Bridge even offer different subdivisions within the main development at staggered price ranges! Although the size of the homes may differ, this offers home ownership within the main development itself to potential home owners with differing incomes.

Homes for sale in Birmingham differ in style between the varying neighborhoods. Red brick homes are extremely popular, yet craftsman and americana style homes can be found for sale in neighborhoods such as Hillsboro, The Preserve, Letson Farms, and Riverwoods. Each neighborhood in Birmingham also has it's own personality. Places such as Old Cahaba may appear more family oriented with their community tennis courts and swimming pools than other residential developments, but communities such as Mt. Laurel have incredible children's play areas and walking paths for residents.
